This book has been written for nurses during their training and for later reference. It includes the indications and descriptions of all common operations. General technic is taken up, and the various operating room essentials are discussed. An elaborate section includes pictures of most instruments needed in the operating room. Various regions of the body are described in a systematic manner and the classic operations are clearly and briefly described. The conciseness of the text, together with the careful selection of the essential details, is possible only through the wide experience of the writer, who should be congratulated on the result of his efforts.
